I just moved to a new [big] city, and I have about a week left before school kicks off. Since I moved about a week ago, I've had time to pick up The Mystery Method and go out about every night and try out techniques. Last night was Taco Tuesday, where virtually every bar/grill in this community has cheap tacos and whatnot. These places are busier on a Tuesday than on Friday/Saturday. It's the type of setting where you have to lean in to be heard, which I know you're not supposed to do.
Anyway, so its busy, and there's a pool table in the corner with a big wooden plank over it, with a decently cute girl (6-7) leaning on it. I thought "hey, here's something unusual, I'll try a situational opener." So I went over to the table and stood next to her- facing the table, I asked over my shoulder "Hey, do you know what the deal is with the table?" And I kind of examined it. When I looked back at her, she was already 5-10 feet away, backing up, staring at me wide-eyed, clutching her drink. Like, you'd think I walked up to her with a baseball bat in my hand or something. So I figured I'd bounce and get back to my friends.
So then a buddy and I spot a 4 set of 7-8's standing pretty much right next to us. So I turn a little bit and again, over my shoulder, use the jealous girlfriend opener to the one that is more isolated from the other 3. First she asks "what" and asks me to repeat myself. So I explain the situation again, and she asks "I don't know- why are you asking me?" So I say "Ah, we just wanted a girl's opinion. Never mind."
Am I being threatening/aggressive, or what? I mean, I'm a pretty harmless looking guy- 5'11", 150lbs, no piercings, tattoos or anything. I'm very clean cut. I've had better luck earlier this week, but last night I just completely struck out, so I'm wondering if I did something wrong.
